Phyllis “Penny” Miller


MILLER, Phyllis (Penny) Phyllis Penelope (Penny) Ponikowski Miller, of Frisco, TX, passed away peacefully on June 29, 2022, at the age of 83, while surrounded by her daughter, son and daughter in-law.

Penny was born in Buffalo, NY in December 1938. She graduated from West Seneca High School and then attended University of Buffalo. She married Raymond E. Miller, also from Buffalo, on June 1, 1957, at the early age of 19 and remained married to the love of her live until his death on August 6, 2019. Penny was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend to those who knew her. She enjoyed life to the fullest.

Her interests included traveling, gardening, dinner club, entertaining family and friends, following her beloved Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers, caring for her and Ray’s dogs through the years, playing Canasta, and Slurpee’s. Penny loved the sighting of cardinals: they gave her joy to watch them and pause to remember those who she lost and that they would forever be in her spirit. Penny is preceded in death by her parents, Stan & Fay Ponikowski, and husband, Ray Miller. She is survived by her sister, Judy Nessen; brother, Fred Ponikowski; son, Mark D. Miller (married to Nancy Treadwell Miller); daughter, Julie Miller; grandchildren Sarah Miller Edgecomb (married to Robb Edgecomb), Caroline Miller Toups (married to Stephen Toups) and Hunter Lee Treadwell.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
